Ever since the opening of the Yangon Stock Exchange (YSE), the investors in Myanmar have been showing great interest and enthusiasm in trading there. The range of background of investors is very wide and contains as much diversity as including seafarers and even students. This opportunity has been made available to the people of Myanmar after a long wait of 50 years. For the past 5 decades, Myanmar has been under army rule which strongly steered it towards socialism. Now that this country has started moving towards democracy such exciting changes are taking place in the country not only in economic but all spheres. So far, the major areas on investment in Myanmar have been real estate, gold and cars. Due, to the lack of enough opportunities people have been looking for new avenues for investment. The opening of YangonStock Exchange has provided them with that opportunity and people are making use of it. The amount of interest among people was evident from the fact that early trading had beaten forecasts by a factor of more than 10. The huge success of Yangon Stock Exchange is also evident from the fact that right from its opening it has greatly outperformed the stock market debuts of both the Laos and Cambodia.
